Aakash Desai moved to Canada in 2006 at the age of 15. Since then he has been a proud resident of Grey Highlands. He got involved in the public sphere in 2011 when he was elected to the Grey Highlands Chamber of Commerce Board. He was elected Vice-President in 2013. On April 29, 2014 Aakash became a Canadian citizen and soon after filed his nomination papers to run for council in the 2014 elections. He was sworn in as a councillor on Dec 1 – his 24th birthday. In 2018 he successfully ran for the position of Deputy Mayor and defeated the incumbent. He lives in Markdale with his fiancée and (still) dreams of someday playing for Manchester United.
